While using our 850, left tractor idling for a period and when came back tractor started acting like it wanted to backfire and run rough. Parked over night and checked it this AM. Noticed gas dripping off the bottom of sediment bowl knurled nut. It appears to originate at top of carb above the sediment bowl. This has just suddenly happened. I have not had time to try tightening things yet. The tractor starts and runs fine otherwise. Any ideas or possible solutions are appreciated

Thanks for the suggestion. When I had time, I dried off everything to see if I could tell what part was actually leaking. it appeared that the small red washer type gasket that the bolt which connects the sediment bowl to the carb was deteriorated. I tightend the bolt and stopped the leak. I have purchased replacement gaskets and will fix this weekend. Apparently there was enough vibration from the loader work that it loosened up.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
